Spice Up Your Life At This Hot Sauce Festival!

By Courtney Nuyad - 08 May 2018

Aucklanders, forget being sad that summer is over, because there's still a get a chance to catch some heat. Introducing the Hot Sauce Festival! If you’re a lover of spice, then you won’t want to miss this this one, folks. The Annual NZ Hot Sauce Festival will have you trying more than one hundred locally made hot sauces from 13 iconic NZ brands (including The Lucky Taco, Fire Dragon Chillies and Gringo Killer)!

Feel the burn with more than sauces as this festival, as they will also be serving up some spicy cocktails and a smokehouse food menu that’ll have your face turning red but your tastebuds dancing!

Would you rather be making hot sauce when everyone else is making strawberry jam? Take the chance and enter your personal creation in the homemade hot sauce competition!

Prefer to sit back with a cheeky brew than suffer the wrath of the chilli? Weep with sympathy and pay witness to  NZ's first large scale chilli eating attempt for the Guinness Book of Records.

Gather some of your cheeky chilli-lovin’ friends and spice up your life by grabbing a ticket to this special event! Psst, your ticket even gets you a complimentary bottle of Fire Dragon Hot Sauce!
